I would like to thank all those hat attended, and braved the -4 F wind chill, to enjoy another outstanding HRU.

Geostationary amateur satellite planned
 
Published on Oct 14, 2016

We've been hearing about a Geosynchronous satellite for the Western Hemisphere for a while now, but not many details. In this episode from the DCC, project leader Bob McGwire N4HY fills in a lot of blanks. There's no launch date yet, and maybe not quite enough info to start building your ground station (a 'Five & Dime' setup - 5 GHz up, 10 GHz down), but you can start thinking about it.

How would you like to experience outer space without the expense or nausea, if you have a VHF/UHF dual-band HT you are just about ready for takeoff.  A god place to begin your satellite journey might be to visit the AMSAT website http://ww2.amsat.org/  You can also e-mail me at  W2JV@AMSAT.ORG it's that simple! I'm a volunteer with the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT) for NY State.  

I have a weather website, www.northportnyweather.com  with satellite links that will give you more details. I've shared below a short video of a satellite pass using my Yaesu FT-50R and an extended whip antenna, it can be done.  http://youtu.be/Iplax00A690

Vintage Magavox Astro Star Micromatic Console Stereo AM FM with Turn Table 

                                                                                            

We all 'own' a what got me interested in amateur radio story, as a kid lying in front of that Magnavox Astro Star Micromatic Console Stereo AM/FM and tuning in Short wave and CW broadcasts from our Woodside, NY home to far corners of the world was a magical experience.

In 1963 I heard about this radio host Jean Shepherd who was doing a weekly show on WOR from 10:15- 11:00 PM.  With my radio under the sheets I began to experience this unique talent for weaving stories and talking about Ham radio.

In 1964 the Worlds Fair came to my neighborhood and Shep mentioned that he regularly contacted K2US in the Coca-Cola pavilion, the tower is where they placed the dipole antenna.  I was overwhelmed by the Collins S line studio equipment and the voices of K2ORS, Jean Shepherd and K7UGA, Barry Goldwater, there was no turning back now.

 

Let's get into Ham Radio

My next step was to find a local 'HAM' that would be willing to administer the Novice 5 wpm and question exam.  I took to my bike and started looking up for a beam, I found one a few blocks away and knocked on the door and was welcomed to his shack to hear the rhythm and beat of CW on 40 meters. 

I was no longer known as just "Pete the paperboy" but WN2OQQ, I was a technician until 1995 until I joined the GSBARC and meeting Phil, N2MUN who was the class instructor. He had a special way to teach and with his help  I advanced to extra class, I held WB2OQQ until 2013.  

 

W2JV

I had a few requirements if I was to win a call thru the FCC auction process.  The call had to have some history as well as the previous owner.  W2JV was first issued in 1929, the second year of the W2 calls.  I am the 4th owner of the call, the previous holder was Leiper P Read, first licensed in May 1938.  He was in the U.S.. Army Air Corp from 1940 to 1945 as a Tech Sergeant. Leiper distinguished himself as an outstanding and inventive radio technician for numerous types of aircraft, including B-24 bombers and the P-51's of the 359th Fighter Group stationed in England. The irony in his background is that my Father was in the Air Corps at the same time in the same location, they may have met!  

Activities

When I'm not making satellite contacts or downloading telemetry data I enjoy HF very much.  I'm a member of the Great South Bay ARC, http://www.gsbarc.org in Babylon, NY. It's a very active club with our own facility, used for emergency communications and club activities in the EOC of Babylon Town Hall.  We have open houses on Wednesdays and Saturdays and a few years ago I was in a kit building class, run by our master teacher, AB2ZI, Kevin, and 2013 Hudson Div. Ham of the year, that put together our own RXTX kits by Tony Parks. http://fivedash.com/    I recently had the pleasure of working with KD2ADC, ED, who built a pre-amp that allows the unit to work very effectively on SSB with 1 watt.

Amateur Satellites

In 1959 a group of enthusiasts in California formed Project Oscar and persuaded the United States Air Force to replace ballast on the Agena upper stage with the 4.5 kg OSCAR, Orbital Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio.  

Oscar 1, launched December 12th, 1961, was an overwhelming success.  More than 570 Amateurs in 28 countries forrwarded observations to the Project OSCAR data reduction center.

I was introduced to Amateur Satellites Field Day, 2008 by the Order of Boiled Owls and Radio Central ARC.  I met Neil, KC2KY who with Richie, KB2ZPB was operating the Satellite station.  I owned an FT50R dual band HT, I bought an Arrow antenna and began to 'explore' outer space on the FM Satellites, it was that easy!
